Four students from Northern Ireland are embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Buckingham Palace this week - after reaching the final of a nationwide codebreaking challenge.

The pupils from St Catherine¹s College, Armagh took part in the 2018 CyberFirst Girls Competition which saw girls aged 12-13 test their sleuthing skills and technological mettle against a series of head-scratching challenges.

The Armagh team known as The Furious Four had previously seen off more than 1,200 other teams before making it as the only NI team in the grand final of 10 teams held in Manchester.
